These symptoms could all be due to hormone imbalance!

Hormone imbalance can also be called hormone deficiency. It results from the decline of female reproductive hormones.
These hormones include estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.

Estrogen

Estrogen is the predominant female hormone. There are many forms of estrogen in the bloodstream. The major form is called estradiol. Another form, called estriol, is extremely weak in the human body (contrary to what other “experts” claim).

Progesterone

Progesterone is an important hormone mainly during pregnancy. Progesterone is also required for the body to have regular menstrual cycles. Progesterone is used for post-menopausal hormone therapy if the woman still has her uterus. (This means that if you have had a hysterectomy, you DO NOT need to use progesterone.) Progesterone helps prevent bleeding as a side effect of hormone therapy and also prevents the increased risk of uterine cancer that can occur if estrogen is used alone.

Testosterone

Testosterone is usually thought of as the “male” hormone but it is also present in the female body, to a much lower degree than in males. However, testosterone deficiency in women is being recognized as the cause of many of the above symptoms of hormone imbalance!
